Dear mike: the census is indeed anonymous. I pointed out to you, about five or six posts back, that names and addresses are simply for formal reasons, to try to eliminate the chance of having the same person's information being entered twice. I remember that last census night i was in a house other than the one I lived in and my information was filled in for both. Moreover, the name and address is not given to any other organisation except the CSO. Perhaps you don't believe that, but that is a different issue, and simply indicative of your general paranoia.
Again and again in these posts, but particularly in your last one where you still fail to understand the point I was making (I never stated that those who put down 'Catholic' were liars, simply that there is a difference between nominal Catholicism in Ireland and Islam - you might try to find out about this rather than persisting in your naive belief that 'sure, we are all the same really'). You simply displayed again and again how ignorant you were of basic sociological facts about the difference between cultural and religious communities, ignorant of basic facts about how social, health and infrastructural projects are planned and implemented, ignorant about the basic sources historians use, and also completely paranoid about Bertie Ahern.
Fill in the cenus for God's sake. That is all they are asking!
